Oak Park, 13 Harrison St, Oak Park, IL 60304, USA


Feeling overwhelmed by the busyness of the holidays, or just need a reason to disengage from the stress of everyday life?

  • Enjoy an afternoon of gentle, guided meditations to relax and unwind.
  • Discover a lasting source of peace and happiness within yourself.
  • Share the peace you develop with others

During each session, Buddhist monk Gen Zamling will provide practical instruction and guide meditations you can practice at home following the retreat.  You are welcome to ask any questions during the sessions.

We will encourage silence during the two brief breaks to promote greater mental peace and introspection.  After the retreat we will offer light refreshments, and you are invited to stay to socialize and relax if you wish.

No previous experience needed--perfect for both beginners and seasoned meditators; absolutely everyone is welcome to attend.
